Chalmers was given the right to confer doctorates in 1940. Since then 2,595 PhDs (Engineering), 242 PhDs, 2 PhDs (Economics), one PhD (Medicine) and 179 honorary doctors have been conferred.
Chalmers organizes a conferment ceremony every spring (ususally in middle/late May). The ceremony 2013 takes place in the Gothenburg Concert Hall on Saturday June 1st at 2.30 p.m. After the conferment ceremony there is a banquet in the Conference Center at Campus Lindholmen. Chalmers invites them whose application of a PhD degree has been reviewed and issued on February 28 at the latest.
The processing of your application begins when the information required is complete and takes approximately two months. Please note that the processing can be both shorter and longer due to the work load and in incomlete application will delay the procedure. If you apply for a degree at the end of a semester the time to get your degree will usually be longer.
